This workshop, based on the book ‘Outlast- How ESG Can Benefit Your Business’ by Dr. Mukund Rajan and Dr. Colonel Rajeev Kumar, will introduce you to the basics of ESG. This session will provide an orientation for corporate leaders and executives about the manner in which the ESG landscape is swiftly changing in India.
Dr. Mukund Rajan is the Chairman of ECube Investment Advisors, a first of its kind platform created in 2019 to catalyse Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) changes in Corporate India. Prior to this, he held a number of senior executive positions through his 23-year career with the Tata Group, where he served as the first Brand Custodian of the Tata Group, Chief Ethics Officer of the Group, Chairman of the Tata Global Sustainability Council, and Member of the Group Executive Council at Tata Sons.
He serves as the Chairperson of the Environment Committee of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and is a member of the ESG Advisory Committee constituted by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
In 2007, the World Economic Forum honoured Dr. Rajan as a Young Global Leader. His doctoral dissertation, 'Global Environmental Politics', was published by Oxford University Press in 1996, and his second book, 'The Brand Custodian – My Years with the Tatas', was published by HarperCollins in 2019. His third book titled 'Outlast – How ESG Can Benefit Your Business', co-authored with Dr. Colonel Rajeev Kumar, has recently been published by HarperCollins.
